    Not sure if I'm getting this right but... poltergeist the room until everyone runs screaming, then walk out with the prize... unless this is the persona 5 thief thing? then just walk in like I own the place, rock-paper-scissor'sing my way to the treasure, as all good RPGers know you have to clear out the rooms to get enough XP... (no I've never played a persona game, all I know is what I've seen roommates play.) Next question: Given the context of difficulty being split between required time investment and twitch reflexes, and the fact that by their inherent design the games that follow reduce twitch requirements as time is invested. Are Dark Souls & Monster Hunter games actually difficult?

    So this is kinda a game, kinda an AMA, but... Everyone answers the last question posted, then proposes a new one. You wont know who you'll get an answer from, but that's half the fun! To start off... What are your opinions on the Great Suwa Wars?

    having problems with hsifs

    Might be displaying off the side of your screen? If you cant find & drag it back onto screen you might access it via task-bar and press "windows" & left. hopefully that kicks it back onto screen, if not there's likely an actual issue somewhere.

    How can we improve?

    https://moriyashrine.org/discover/ ? It doesn't help with the flooding, but it'll go back as far as you want it. Maybe if we could get a smarter condensation of file uploads into a single post?

    Steam Chat

    Apperently there was a round of "Steam Shuffle" that got played: new shrine group: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/MoriyaShrineOfficial
  6. Didn't know if people realized this but steam has kinda been overhauling their chat systems over the past few months. They've actually managed to make it work as a easy realtime browser based chat. For most people I don't suspect this will replace discord any time soon, but for those who want to it's a great place to come chat about games. https://steamcommunity.com/groups/MoriyaShrine

    I've more or less had a library, video store, bathroom stall, post office, pen-pals, and social clubs within 20 seconds of my reach since I was 6. Despite this I don't know that I've every really merged with the zeitgeist like most people my age/younger. Something about broadcasting my views into a torrential unceasing flow of ideas like twitter seems pointless without having a waiting crowd that you know wants to listen. Between that, the polarization of media due to every increasing competition for attention and other such negations of niche culture, it increasingly just kinda wears down on me. But as I'm not usually wanting for time fillers/afraid to come to my own faulty conclusions and communication those conclusion for reform, I've never had an issue disconnecting. I'm definitely reliant on information lookup though. I think I used spellcheck around 50 times when writing this. Not to mention the utter life saving torrent of information/games/people that I find outside the main social media spaces, without having access to such things I probably would have turned into a criminal out of sheer boredom. Question the 38th: What do you do with thoughts you have that you want to voice and have conversations on but know that it only leads to arguing and no actual conversations?

    IT. IS. TIME! to play Hisoutensoku!

    hmmm... I should make time to go through setting it up again, but iirc you should be opening 12.3 and have Cirno, Suwako, and one other? then there's a config file you edit to get all the characters from 10.5 added in as well.

    IT. IS. TIME! to play Hisoutensoku!

    iirc Hamachi allows you to set up a distributed network with other computers. It'll assign a IP address to each person on the network, then you can use those via the in game connection screen to attempt a connection. There may be some port forwarding required for it to work properly.
  10. Granted this isn't a neutral space, but I'm still surprised at the number of people selecting Suwako avatars. Didn't think it'd be a character that grows on people considering her biggest official appearance was in Hisoutensoku, or did I miss a release?

    How does the Rank system work in this website?

    Ranks are automatically distributed based on... reputation if I'm remembering correctly. As you gain Rep you'll level up in ranks. Reputation being earned primarily by getting a reaction to one of your posts. Looks like there's "Thanks","Laugh", "Sad", "Confused", and "Like". I believe they all count the same, but I'd personally steer away from being *that* guy that only gets sad/confused responses from people. The responses can be on any post btw, be it a file, photo album, status blerb, etc. In addition if you get the most likes/responses in a single day you will "win the day" which just ticks up a number on your profile and the last day you won will also be displayed on there.

    I'm honestly really struggling to think of an example, most of the time a backstory can't save a character I actively dislike. The backstory can make a character interesting and save them from being bland, but if they're a prick then they are a prick, doesn't really matter why they act that way if I don't want to be around them in the first place. There's plenty of villains that are pretty bland and forgettable before you start into their backstory. Dracula from Castlevania comes to mind what with the recent netflix adaptation. Takes a generic "Exterminate Everyone" bad guy and turns it into this fallen martyr of a character that, while pure evil and unredeemable, is still relatable. (35?) Given the ever increasing rate of media output, monitization, and consumption, what is the appropriate length of time before you start posting spoilers on a topic, does that change if the medium requires more time/energy for a potential viewer to get the complete experience?

    Well if we go by a random online quiz I found the Arcana would be Heirophant, which apparently already includes Mishaguji in some games... granted a more... phallic representation than in touhou. Given an OC (do not steal) one though... Cerridwyn would be the name I suppose, it's already a literal character/persona I use in most games. And I'll go with Moon for an arcana. Most decisions I make are based Observations and Intuitions rather than cold calculations, even when doing programming I'm mostly thinking about the flow of data and doing a mental feel rather than true pathing and math. What are your thoughts on fandoms? do you think they help people connect? or do you fear that they lead to infighting and ostracism of those on the fringes of the fandom?

    What do you listen to at the moment?

    Have some silly metal, including Mongol Metal, and Hurdy Gurdies.

    Favorite Headcannons

    What are some of the favorite conspiracy theories &/|| headcannons for touhou characters (or others)? In general I guess these should be stories/theories that explain aspects of the characters, rather than redefining the characters. In general though it's a pretty loose definition. I would hope to steer clear of a list of "here's why OTP 932188 is true". I guess for starters. A while back I had a concept for Pyonta (Suwako's Hat) as an amalgamate consciousness of Mishaguji who are petrified and woven together, allowing Suwako to contain the vast majority of their power without much effort. It also explains the vigilance Suwako displays at keeping her hat beyond "it's a trope". Also helps with the animism of the hat itself.

    What touhou game is your favorite?

    Hisoutensoku's mix of fighting mechanics and bullet hell struck the sweet spot imo. (10.5/12.3) I really like the balance of being able to either rush down, suppress or combo to high heavens in the game, particularly in combination with the graze and combo lock mechanics. It keeps the game fast and skillful without making it into a 100% combo lock game. The card mechanics also work wonders since you can master alternate movesets with the same character. While alot of this gets carried over to... 13.5 I think it was, the lack of a stable ground to deal with took away a lot of variety in both moves and fighters. And the downward arc of jumps didn't make up for it. in general 13.5 also just felt like you were swimming up stream the whole time since it kept dragging the fighters closer together rather than letting them exist in an space unhindered. 10.5/12.3 was also the hook that kept me into touhou, so there's that.
  20. Sifting through the old Proboards forums is an odd experience, I'd think akin to urban exploration &/or spelunking, but I've never done either.

    For future reference though, apparently joining the chat on that page is only doable via the full steam client. Once you're in however it should pull up any time you open the chat page in the web browser.
